The Toy Soldier and the Ballerina

A few meters can be a long way if that is what separates you and the object of your desire. Here, however, the toy soldier leaps over to his ballerina with ease and grace, so enabling them to dance together for the first time.

For some reason this piece works as if it is one of the fairy tales written by Oscar Wilde rather than any other writer.  Answers on a postcard as to why I might think why....
